New Delhi, March 10 (IANS) The Election Commission will announce on Sunday evening the schedule for the much awaited Lok Sabha elections.

The poll panel has called a press conference at the more spacious Vigyan Bhavan at 5 p.m.

The Election Commission on Saturday conducted a review meeting as part of its preparations for the staggered elections to elect 543 members to the Lok Sabha. Two members are nominated.

The schedule for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections that brought to power the BJP led by Narendra Modi, ending 10 years of Congress-led UPA rule, was announced on March 5 that year.

When the election schedule is announced on Sunday evening, the model code of conduct will immediately come into effect.

Prime Minister Modi is again spearheading the Bharatiya Janata Party’s campaign to retain power against an opposition that wants to end his rule but is still struggling to overcome the many differences within.
